Yep, it's that time again, when I post early on a friday morning, which can mean only one thing..
It's Alphabet Challenge Blog time!
We're up to the letter C and it was my turn to choose the theme. I noticed what date the challenge would be on, and as the Irish representative of the team, I had to go for...
C for Celebrate Saint Patrick's Day!
Or you can do a good luck card instead if you want!
So here's my card...
The images are from The Paper Shelter. I've coloured them with the following copics - Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair; YR07,04,02. Clothes; G17,16,14,85,82,21,Y08,06,02,100,C9,7. Grass; YG17,13,11. Shamrocks;YG07,05,03. Pot; V17,15,12. And all the same colours were used for the castle scene.
The floral paper is K & Co and I'm afraid I don't know where the green spotty paper is from but I wish I did cos I love it! The spots are flocked so the texture is fantastic!
The sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse Stamps and I punched it out with a Stampin' Up! word punch using a technique I think I saw on Pinterest (only, I can't find it now) cos the phrase was too long for the punch, brilliant!
I made the Leprechaun sit out from the card by attaching him to a spring that I made out of two strips of card.
The cluster of shamrocks were made using Spellbinder heart dies.
The mushrooms, shamrock charm and flowers are from my stash.
I also made it a deep easel card so as it would close over the mushrooms which are quite bulky for the inside. It needs a little tweeking, but it sort of works.
So that's my Paddy's Day card. Why not head over to the Alphabet Challenge Blog to see some fabulous creations from the rest of the DT, including some for Saint Patrick's Day and some for Good Luck.
Thanks for looking!
